When Georgios Georgiou launched his Chicago-based seasonal decor company in 2017, he decided right away that its success would be meaningless if left unshared with others.
Georgiou has kept true with his founding principle and told The Pappas Post that, for the 2019 holiday season, his company Gigi Seasons will donate a portion of proceeds to benefit various children’s charities in Greece
The Cyprus native has elected to show his support via the New York-based Greek America Foundation’s #ChildrenOfGreece campaign, which is supporting six accredited Greek charities whose work impacts all aspects of children’s livelihood — from birth to their older years.
Georgiou’s company is donating proceeds via its philanthropic branch, known as Gigi Cares: Projects for Humanity. The company offers various high-end artisan products including lifelike Christmas trees, designer stockings, tree skirts, ornaments, ribbon and more. It even offers consumers an innovative way to stylize with its “One-Click Room” collections — all-in-one packages with decorations for an entire room.
Launched in 2017, Gigi Seasons stems from lessons that Georgiou learned during his childhood on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Since that time, he says, he has always been motivated to work hard, make a difference — and give back.
He says that success brings added responsibility, and for Christmas of 2019 he has taken responsibility to support the most vulnerable members of Greece’s population — her children.
“I’ve thought a lot about making a difference,” Georgiou said. “I truly believe that every company can make a difference somewhere in the world. It doesn’t always take a huge commitment to change someone’s economic outlook.”
“Often we are afraid to try because other people’s problems seem so enormous. But I think if you realize that making a change on a micro-level reverberates out in the community and creates lasting impact, we can help a lot of people,” he added.
Georgiou has already kicked off his campaign for the Greek America Foundation with a $3,000 donation.
